mccain and lindsey graham are slamming rand's public protest and members of their own party have joined in. >> the country needs more senators who care about liberty. but if mr. paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. he needs to know what he's talking about. >> to my republican colleagues, i don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that president bush was going to kill anybody with a drone. yeah, i don't even remember the harshest critics of the -- of president bush on the democratic side. they had a drone program back then. so what is it? all of a sudden that this drone program has gotten every republican so spun up? to my party, i'm a bit disappointed that you no longer apparently think we're at war. >> "new york times" photographer caught this image yesterday of what must have been an interesting elevator ride for senators mccain and paul. >>> john brennan who's nomination to lead the cia was temporarily blocked by rand's filibuster was confirmed yesterda

revealed a division in republican ranks. arizona senator john mccain, who was a prisoner of war in vietnam, scoffed at paul's claim that someone like jane fonda would ever have been targeted. >> to somehow allege or infer that the president of the united states is going to kill somebody like jane fonda or somebody who disagrees with the policies is a stretch of imagination which is, frankly, ridiculous. >> brown: and south carolina senator lindsey graham accused his colleagues of using a double standard. >> i don't remember any of you coming down here suggesting that president bush was going to kill anybody with a drone. you know, i don't even remember the harshest critics of president bush on the democratic side. they had a drone program back then. >> brown: at the white house, spokesman jay carney underscored the constitutional limitations on the president's power. >> the president swore an oath to uphold the constitution, and he is bound by the law. whether the lethal force in question is a drone strike or a gunshot, the law and the constitution apply in the same way. >> brown:

lindsey graham and john mccain launched their own drone strike against paul. >> we have done, i think, a disservice to a lot of americans by making them believe that somehow they are in danger from their government. they are not. i don't think what happened yesterday is helpful to the american people. what we saw yesterday is going to give ammunition to those critics who say that the rules of the senate are being abused. i hope that my colleagues on this side of the aisle will take that into consideration. >> to take this debate into the absurd is what i object to. >> laura: now, don't get me wrong. they have the right to disagree with paul and the majority of g.o.p. senators who stood with him. but, given that the filibuster lasted 13 hours, why didn't either of them have the moxxy to debate their colleague face to face on the senate floor? what were they afraid of? presumably they could have done so either before or after their dinner with the president. were they jealous that a junior senator dominated the headlines and managed to galvanize left and right? are they worried that the

filibuster. >> that's right. john mccain and lindsay graham took to the floor earlier today and said they did not approve of the filibuster. half of the republican caucus of the course of the afternoon and evening joined him on the floor asking him questions, but mccain said it wasn't serious. to the realm of the ridiculous. >> there you had mccain and graham ripping rand paul, but the top senators in terms of republicans and democrats seemed to respect rand paul for his stamina and his strong conviction. >> shepard: i simply do not get it. like there was question about whether if the government just decided to kill one of, maybe they could got to wait for an answer, this is what we spent 4 hours on? getting an answer to whether the government can really just kill us with some bird in the air? they can't too anything in that town if that is a question in america today, we're done. i mean, who thinks that is possible? you good to prison for that. that's what you do. you shoot somebody and kill somebody and you're the government and you -- you go to prison. what are you talking about? this

got from john mccain and lindsey graham, who said this isn't the type of position on national security our party should be taking. >> on the democratic side, we saw joe biden's schedule. seems to touch on all the groups you would need to touch on to come through a democratic primary. but this far out, we're in march of 2013, it seems to me that it's hillary, and that decision, and that's it. from the aides i've talked to, if she wants it, it's hers. no one can challenge her at this point. there's no barack obama coming around. >> that's why we'll probably not get an answer from her for a couple of years, which is why all the activity that we're seeing is happening on the republican side. not only was rand paul making waves, jeb bush. we saw marco rubio taking center stage giving his state of the union response to president obama. all these republicans seem to be doing little different things to at least dip their toes in the 2016 waters to prepare themself for something still three years away. >> the pressure on hillary is unbelievable. lastly, carl levin retiring. this adds t

the world. if i ever forget vietnam, please remind me and do it loud. so when john mccain blasted rand paul the other day for, quote, stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms, i thought back to when i myself was in one of those college dorms up at holy cross where people are now under ten inches of snow. i assume they're arguing about drones, about the rights of the government to use drones against americans, even those who turned against their country. debates are where it all begins. what burn, gives us hot with ideas. freedom from government interference, freedom from decisions that accept government is more important than citizens. so i may not have the attitude of a rand paul, but i worship his right to have it. in some dorm room somewhere, perhaps where i went to college, where you went to college, there are young people arguing about it and i stay thank god to that. cynthia tucker and ron reagan. ron, i always trust what he you think and your heart and your brain put together. this thing, this fight on the right between the establishment of hawk

washington hotel if you watched from the white house, about dozen republicans invited by john mccain and lindsay graham, the president's them in cease. and then the next day the president had lunch with paul ryan. what is happening? what is going on in washington that's shifting this from what we've seen before which is basically people yelling at each other from opposite sides of pennsylvania avenue? >> even though president obama obviously won the election, the republicans have dug in so hard especially on this income tax issue that we were talking about earlier. and i think to some degree the democrats were taken by surprise. for example when you had that fiscal cliff fight that was right at the owned the year, in fact, it went into january 1, president obama was in a position to take a larger revenue increase if he really wanted to. he chose not to. he dialed it down a little bit thinking there would be more down the line. i think he's taking a somewhat different approach, well, let's try to reach out more, to have more conversation with members. he has tried this before. i mean, it'
